Western Isles Wildflowers
Western Isles wildflowers is a collection of information about our Hebridean wildflowers including identification hints, traditional herbal uses and general plant lore.
Close-up of this tiny flower that is usually too small to see properly...
Field forget me-not flowers are only 1/8 to 3/16 inches across, water forget-me-not flowers are about 1/4 inch across
In the Western Isles the forget me-not was magically associated with gaining wealth and protection from evil influences.
This plant is sometimes known as common forget-me-not, it usually grows on arable land.
We have water forget-me-not, creeping forget-me-not, tufted forget-me-not, common forget-me-not (field), and changing forget-me-not (yellow) growing in the Western Isles.
